Native Seed Program

Melrose Air Force Range in Eastern New Mexico was once covered by training-friendly native grassland like the area pictured here. Species like the Honey Mesquite shrub have invaded the range and made training much more difficult and, in some areas, impossible. Air Force Natural Resource specialists are currently addressing the problem using a variety of methods including the Native Seed Program which reintroduces native seeds and plants to the range to improve the usability of the 70,000-acre training area.
